  The default in "tmac/troffrc" is:

.\" Handle paper formats on typesetting devices.
.if t .do mso papersize.tmac

  Formatting with page format "letter" and printing on an A4 paper,
makes the footer too big (high, extra empty lines).

  When "groff" is configured, the variable "PAGE" is (should be) set to
the default paper format for the default printer.

  So the variable "paper" in "papersize.tmac" should have the same
value as "$PAGE".

  With, for example, this addition to "tmac/troffrc" before reading the

.if t \{\
.  do if !d paper .do ds paper A4\" use $(PAGE) to configure
